Rug doctor or third party carpet cleaners?

Hello people, I'm in the middle here.. I will be moving out and my bedroom carpet is a bit of a mess and of course I would not want to unnecessary deductions and I'm looking for the best solution. So here's my question: For what I can see, both options seem to come at pretty much the same price: a rug doctor is about 23 quid but for what I've read I'll have to buy detergents too, which is said to be give or take another 20 quid, but if I hire professionals do it it might be a bit pricier but it says I'll have a 72 hours guarantee, so where's the catch? Obviously, with a doctor I'll have to the the cleaning myself, but it still feels suspicious.

  • I would suggest Rug Doctor, they are good machines. You can use other carpet cleaner with this. You will be clear on the cost without any unknowns. Good luck Owen

  • Hello, generally speaking our Agency would not consider a rug doctor a 'professional' clean. From experience, if you choose the right company to do the clean for you, the carpets will usually come up far better. The machines that our cleaners use cost around £5,000 each, so will do a much better job than a rug doctor.

  • I have not yet made a decision here, for it's not yet time to leave. The operator from fantastic cleaners offered a considerable discount if we hire them for multiple chores around the house and I will still have the 72h reclean guarantee, so I'm yet to figure out which is the wises choice. @Lee, that's pretty much what I was told. If i call for professionals, gear will outperform a rug doctor by miles, and we do have quite a few stains. If you're running an agency would you please take a look at and let me know if I could trust this "72h guarantee?" thank you!
